The World's Greatest Unkown Guitarist

Roy Buchanan



Hey Joe





Soul Dressing





The Messiah Will Come





RIP

Roy Buchanan was awesome, those clips kill. For my money I'd have to go for the other greatest unknown guitar killer, Danny Gatton:

They both offed themselves. Very sad. Gatton was the most eclectic guitar player IMO.

 Both Roy and Danny "The Humbler" Gatton were amazing players. Sadly, they were apparently tortured souls as well.

 Danny.. I can still listen to 88 Elmira street or Redneck Jazz in my head.

Well, Roy 'officially' takes the title since the 1971 PBS documentary about him was called:  Introducing Roy Buchanan: The World's Greatest Unknown Guitaritst.

 

Well don't that beat all. I'd like to see that film, looks cool.
